Layout and composition refers to the structure and organisation of subject matter, and a practical understanding and exploration of the topic is crucial for effective visual communication.
The term ‘layout‘ refers to the way in which we organise the disparate material that makes up the content of a design.
The aim is to both present information in a logical way and to make the important elements stand out. Use of a grid and consistently styled elements also helps the reader to absorb information in a visually pleasing way.
